      A soup lovers dream! I used meaty lamb shanks and added 6 beef bouillion cubes to the water. I substituted rutabega for the turnip, added a chopped parsnip, 2 pressed garlic cloves, bay leaf and a bit of white wine once the veggies where tender. This is a hearty main dish soup that can only be improved by some buttered crusty bread for dunking!

      great great recipe! I made a few changes - stewed the lamb shanks for a couple hours and used half beef broth instead of just water. this is one of those recipes where you almost want to make it a day ahead and refrigerate - the next day the flavors were even better together!
